What is Dance Marathon?

RhodyTHON is the movement sweeping the campus at the University of Rhode Island.  We raise funds for our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, Hasbro Children’s Hospital.  We come together as Rhody to support the kids from our local community being treated at our local CMN hospital.  We are more than a movement, we are a family.  We are part of the Miracle Network Dance Marathon family of 400 college and high school programs standing and raising money for their local CMN Hospital. We raise more than funds, we raise awareness by standing and dancing for the kids who can’t.  So if you’re looking to be a miracle maker and to become a part of something that is better than yourself, then RhodyTHON is that place on campus for you.  Join the movement, join our family.

How do I sign up?

To sign up for RhodyTHON, visit here. You will be asked to sign up as a dancer or a fundraiser and whether you would like to create a team or join an existing one. The difference between a dancer and fundraiser is described below.

What is the difference between a dancer and a upgraded dancer?

Both types of dancers fundraiser throughout the year and participate during the actual event. However, an upgraded dancer receives a VIP package which includes a t-shirt, water bottle, and reusable bag. VIP packages will be available for pickup the week before the fundraiser.

I signed up as a fundraiser, but now I want to dance. What do I do?

We would love if you switched from a fundraiser to a dancer. Just inform us and we will get you switched over.

What is Children’s Miracle Network? What is a Miracle Child?

Children’s Miracle Network is an international non-profit network of hospitals that raises funds for children’s hospitals, medical research and community awareness of children’s health issues.
